The city of Dubai was chosen for this challenge to gain first-hand knowledge of a global business hub known for its great vision, hospitality, and commerce. The tour is also intended to introduce winners to the next step in their vision and success journey, including learning resources and post-graduation opportunities in Dubai.
Prince Tonye Princewill, founder and initiator of Princewills Trust, emphasized further saying that:
It took a huge effort by Stella Fubara-Obinwa and her team in Dubai Tourism and Nneka Oduah and her team at CLR to pull this off. For that, I am truly grateful. We would have loved to have more people go, but the standards are high and this aspect will never be compromised. Lighthouses do not move for ships, it is the other way round. What the team at Princewills Trust will do is continue to support initiatives like this, with a view to further promoting the next generation of our Rivers youths. Thank you Dubai Tourism, thank you CLR, thank you to my team and big congratulations to the winners. I know that they will make us all, very very proud.
